There will be a Protest/leafleting this Thursday 11th April, from 5pm to 7pm, when Zippos Circus comes
to Brockwell Park, Herne Hill.

We'll be meeting by the gates to the Circus. Leaflets,
placards, and banners, will all be provided for you to
use there.

Contact number for this demonstration is:

[masked] 383.

Zippos Circus are one of only eight circuses in the UK that
continue to use animals. The other 23 UK circuses don't use
animals. Zippos Circus uses Horses, Ponies, and Budgerigars
in they're performances.

Animal Defenders International did an undercover investigation
of this circus, in 2006. Here's a link to that investigation, this link
shows what they found:

There's also a Youtube video of Zippos Circus, by Animal Rights
Cambridge, that you can watch. Here's the link for that video:

There are already advertising posters up in the area, so if you live
in the area please try to remove illegal posters, and please try to
persuade shops not to display them either.

The nearest National Rail Station is Herne Hill, which is in fare
zones 2 & 3. Brockwell Park is just across the road, from Herne
Hill station. There are fast and frequent First Capital Connect
trains from Blackfriars, Farringdon, and St. Pancras
International, to Herne Hill station. You can also get fast and
frequent Southeastern trains from Victoria, to Herne Hill station
too.

Please try you're best to make this important
demonstration. These animals need us to protest for them
whenever we can, in order for them to eventually be freed
from their exploitation, and allowed their freedom.
